well, like most of you, I am asking - where has the year gone huh??
but we are getting closer to Christmas... and that is very exciting. I haven't even stated my Christmas shopping yet, but at least I have ideas in my head about what to but and for whom, so that is the hardest part done. I would like to get some of the shopping done before the shops get to to busy, but also, I like to leave some to the last minute to get that real Christmas feel.
I have been really lucky to have participated in two swap recently - well 3 actually. No 1 was Helen Stibbings Anel Swap - and a very big thank you to my stictching angel - Bonnie Landry of http://calamityjanescottage.blogspot.com/
No 2 was the Vinatge Pink Christmas swap arranged by Jennifer Smith - http://www.roseylittlethings.com/ - and I have posted ny gifts to my swap partner - so I hope that she gets them very soon and enjoys them, it was hard to find vintage in New Zealand, we have so few shops, and those that we do - you need to poke around to find what you maybe looking for, what fun!!!
The 3rd swap is the snowflakes and sparkles swap - organised by Momma Holly - http://mommyholly.blogspot.com/
and again I have just posted off my goodies to America, can't wait til my partner gets these goodies...
on another Christmas note I am sorting thru this basket of fabric to look at what I can do in the next few weeks...
and I have this to work with also....
and this is what my sewing room looks like at them moment with all our house renovations.. the painters come in this week so then maybe can put up the Christmas decorations - YIPPEE!!
and then my dining room can look more like this!
and my pocket book slightly emptier!!!
have fun over the week everyone.
